E-Commerce Stock Watch: Even More Drama at Lycos

As if things weren’t complicated enough, the proposed merger between Lycos (Nasdaq: LCOS) and USA Networks (Nasdaq: USAI) has led to a lawsuit.

Law firm Milberg Weiss announced on Monday that a shareholder suit has been filed against Lycos. The complaint alleges that Lycos “issued a series of false statements which represented that Lycos was “committed to an independent strategy” when, in fact, Lycos was in serious and advanced discussions to merge with USA Networks, Inc.”
